Bo they all formed la a big- circle on the kindergarten ring that W painted on th* floor and waved their flags and ••luted, bringing- their little hands up to their little beads, then dropping- them stiffly at the sides of their white pinafores with a childish g*.uoherie that tent the war scarred veterans off Into shouts of laughter. They were fiercely patriotic those fifty five-year old babies. Bach was done up in a whit* cocked hat with a red. white and blue tassel, with badges and cockades and streamers stuck here and there over their email persons. Major Butler, addressing- the crown-ups rather than th* sdndergartsers. recalled that April li was th* fortieth anniversary of the shooting of President Lincoln and the anniversary also of the fall of Fort Surater and the salllnff of Dewey Into Manila Bay. Richard Watson Glider, who accepted the flags on behalf of the New- York Kindergarten Association, Sketched his experience In accompanying- Lincoln's funeral cortege from Philadelphia to Newark. •That night was turned into day." he said. "All along the railroad line the tiniest hamlets were lit up In respect for Lincoln, and women, and men, too. were crying-." Colonel Patrick Henry Murphy, commander of Laiayette Post, and Mrs. Algernon Sidney Sullivan of the board of managers of the Nursery ana Child's Hospital, also spoke. The children saluted everything In sight— the flag, the veterans, a picture of Washington and themselves. Finally one toddled op to Major Butler and handed him a paper medal strung on a red ribbon. Colonel Murphy tried to Slip it over Major Butler's head, and Major Butler tried to get th* colonel to wear It. It brought up on Major Butler's chest.

Baron Kantko Describe* Sufferings of Japanese Wives. ▲ most cnthuslaetlo meeting In th* Interests of th* famine* of Japanese soldier* and sailors killed m th* present war was held yesterday morning at th* home of Mrs. Mason C. Davldge. No. 62 Washington Square South. Mrs. Julia Ward Howe presided and Baron Kentaro Kaneko. of Japan, spoke so affectJngly of the heroism and suf fering* of Japanese wives and mothers that the whole audience was moved to tears. The baron explained In rising to address the assembly that he had not Intended to speak, and did not do so In bis official capacity, but he had been so touched by the loving sympathy of American women with his country that he could not be client. Mrs. Howe spoke of the sens* of human brother hood which mad* the sorrows of Japan th* sor rows of America. "The little town of New-York has grown won derfully," she sai<£ "In the last fifty yean, but at the same time the world has grown wonder fully smalL We have found that the nations of the earta are very near akin. America and Japan are brothers, and if Japan has learned much from the West, we of the West have learned many beautiful lessons from Japan." "Japan is lighting the world's battle," said Cbanes Sprague Smith, "the battle of democracy. She Is laying the foundation of Russian liberty." The meeting resulted in a plan for a Japanese entertainment, to be given at to* Beiasco Theatre on a date to be decided on later. The story of "Tee Stolen Emperor." by Mrs. Hugh i'laser, will be Illustrated by living pictures, In which many promi nent women of the city. Including the members of the Japanese colony, will take part. Among the Japanese women will be Mrs. Uchlda. wife of the Japanese consul general; Mrs. K.ei Katsuda, of Toitio; Mrs. Kenjei lonamshi and Mrs. Iwahara. Mrs. Fraser will read the story of "The Stolen Emperor" while the pictures aro being presented, and th* entertainment will conclude with repre sentations of the battle of the Yalu in the Chinese war and the battle of Nanshan In the present one. Two boxes have already been sold at S&O each. A meeting will be held on Monday to arrange further derails. DOMESTIC EDUCATION INEFFECTIVE. A staff of women inspectors, under the direction of th* Hon. Maude Lawrence, has recently been appointed by the London Board of Education. The new staff of inspectors is going to try to dis cover, among other things, why the domestic edu cation offered by the London board sohools Is so Ineffective. Tor mor* then thirty years the board has been endeavoring to teach such subjects as needlework, cookery, laundry work and hygiene. but the Instruction has not as yet. its critics say, produced any appreciable result. "Ws send mis sionaries and doctors to the uttermost parts of the earth," says one paper, lr. commenting on the action of the board, "and yet our home popula tion is so Ignorant that a large percentage of our children are permitted to suffer from wholly pre ventable diseases, from deformities and weaknesses caused by lack of proper attention at birth, from malnutrition afterward, and from carelessness in hsndllug when infants."

NEW-YORK DAILY TTUP.ryR RATrTDAT. ATTTTT, t*. m*vs. COUNCIL OF WOMEN ENDS. Anti-Polygamy and Divorce Resolu tions Adopted. [FROM TH* TRIBCNE BUREAU.] Washington. April I*.— fifth triennial meeting of the National Council of Women held its closing session to-night. The delegates have had a busy •ek. and at this morning's meeting many of the members in a spirited discussion over th* various resolutions presented seemed to be of the opinion that there has been a great deal of talk that might nave been better left unsaid. Mrs. Elisabeth Grannis. of New-York, chairman of the committee on resolutions, held the platform most of the morning. The anti-polygamy resolution, favorably reported from committee yesterday, was passed. Miss Susan B. Anthony was bitterly opposed to the adoption of this resolution. She declared that In maklnß " a fight on any religion or Indorsing any political propaganda the National Council was drift ing away from safe moorings. Mrs. Frederick T. Dubols. wife of Senator Dubols. on the contrary, was jubilant over the adoption of the resolution, and asserted that unless the dele gates proceeded to vote the two affiliated Mormon societies out of the council it would soon find itself minus ail the other organizations, as they could not afford to affiliate with the Mormon societies. Mrs. May Wright Sewall explained how the two societies of the Mormon Church, now members of the council, came to ally themselves with Gentiles. t IT 1 * Wom£n ' Relief Society and the Young Ladles' Mutual Improvement Society asked to be admitted to th* Suffrage Association." she said. There were many good and noble women there who thought of not accepting such women In the association. Miss Anthony took another view, and so did I. and I know she will sustain the statement that it was due to our combined efforts that we were able at the end of a twelve hour session, at which I was present the entire time, to decide in favor of admitting them. You can appreciate the bitterness that prevailed. When the National Council was organized, and when invitations were 6ent out to all organized bodies of women. I was there when the credentials were presented of the organizations from Salt Lake CJty - * w as the corresponding secretary, and wX***?- Wlllard *T»» the president. Before Mdcnng them welcome and asking them to elect their delegates, this society voted to receive them. Then we began investigating their work. The result was that Mlss Wlllard and myself were peased to accept those organizations, not only because we had a right to accept them, but be cause we owed the women of their section a duty L r? II i a £ cc i >t i n *' them - At that time the Edmunds «niL.^?.^S passed, and polygamy had become «*££ i* tO v, tl l&l &w * of th United States, and we supposed that the government would see that the \wL«' cr * « X9CUted - We did not take th*m as rnitTrt^* an 7 man than y° u take me as a ollc " " Xr On ° **"* *• * * w or a Catn " Among the resolutions was one condemning dl vorce, which brought Miss Anthony to the front. She said she did not consider divorce an evil by any means. It was Just as much a refuge for women married to brutal men as Canada was once a refuge from brutal masters. Mrs. Grannis asked the privilege of defending the resolution which was offered to the society of which she is president. She tried to explain to Miss Anthony that the resolution was not in tended to cut out divorce entirely, but to seek out the causes leading to It. Miss Anthony said she- could read and she saw in the resolution more than Mrs. Grannis did. She declared she never would vote for a resolution that would cut women off from refuge from designing and brutal men. There was some pretty plain talk, but In the end the resolution was adopted. The council also adopted resolutions deploring the horrors of war in general, and particularly the present war In the Far East, and pledged itself to establish and maintain kindergartens and day nurseries for the poorer classes of colored children. A luncheon for the members of the council was the social feature of the day. and to-night the last session was held in the ballroom of the Shoreham. Miss Lillian M. Hollister, president of the Supreme Hive. Maccabees of the World, told of "What Fra ternal Benefit Societies Mean to Women," and "Patriotism" was the theme of Mrs. Fannie L. Minot. Resolutions were adopted opposing the Indis criminate us« of the American flai* and advocating on all possible occasions the adoption of the Initia tive and referendum as the most effective means for securing equal rights for women, a preamble to this resolution declaring that through the adoption of legislation of this character equal rights for women will be soonest attained. Mrs. May Wright Sewall, of the committee on peace demonstration, said that at the coming tri ennial literature on peace and arbitration would be prepared and printed In several languages, and so distributed that every community may have access to a good and inexpensive reference library on the subject. Contrary to expectation, the committee en reso lutions did not give any utterance on race suicide. There haa been considerable discussion of this subject in view of the President's references to It. anU many of the delegates to the council had taken Issue with the President. The discussion, however, failed to crystallize into any formal resolution, and the matter was drooped. The council adjourned to meet in Washington three years henoe. Mrs. Ellen Spencer Mussey, dean of the "Wash ington Law College, of this city spoke last night on the marital relation. She said she believed that If something were done to prevent hasty marriages there would be a decrease of 50 per cent In di vorces. There should be universal legislation com pelling each party to a marriage to give a notice of a week or six weeks. Interesting 1 items about prospective partners should be brought out before, rather than after, marriage. The principal address of the evening was made by Mrs. May Wright Sewall, honorary president of the International Council of Women, and alao of the National Council, on 'The Spirit of Inter nationalism." She said In part: The Fplrlt of internationalism is the spirit of democracy. This spirit is Incarnated in two Insti tutions—the International Council of Women and the Hague Court of Arbitration— because they express the best spirit of democracy. They were not founded on force, or on numbers expressed in majorities coercing minorities, but each counts alike. Each nation Is a unit. We recognlza that Individuals should not regard each other because of height or weight It would be absurd to count the opinion of a tall man as more than that of a short man. No one thought less of Thaddeus Stevens because he weighed ninety pounds. The whole soul of God resides In every one of His children. The spirit of Internationalism has gone far enough along for nations to respect each other individ ually. Material development has brought them nearer to each other. What a shame it is that we should try to make every small country feel un important because it doesn't have our area In square miles or our length of coast Un» or great resources. There Is a great need in our country of revising our conception of patriotism, and or our taking away from that conception the spirit of mere boastfulnesß and bullying. CONFERENCE OF TEACHERS.

[FROM TBS TSZSUm BUBBAT7-] Washington. AprU 14.— WoffltB who wm flgur* prominently In th* congress of th* Daughters of th* American Revolution, to open bsrs on Monday, are already arriving, and headquarters of th* vari ous delegations are being established In hotels and other convenient places. Mrs. Donald McLean, of New-Tork. a candidate for th* office of president general of tb* society. arrived at th* Arlington last night, accompanied by Mr. McLean and two of her young daughters. Th* public parlors of the hotel wer* thronged at an early hour this morning with ardent admirers of Mrs. McLean and earnest workers for the success of her candidacy. The telephone was constantly In use. answering questions ss to whether sh* had arrived and when she might be seen. In her own suite of rooms, women singly and In groups waited their turn to communicate with her. Gowned be comingly in a simple whit* morning- dress, she moved among her callers, looking extremely happy. Asked about the probable outcome of the election. ehe replied that, while the reports she had received berore coming here had made her hopeful, she felt rar more encouraged by the additional offers of sup port she had received since her arrival. We are here for peaca." she added. "We are not here lor a n*ht. We nave no acrimonious fe*l« Ing toward any on*. We wish to unite and har monize all elements. Of course, we would like Jus tice, and hope and expect that we will receive the came generously Just treatment which we have accorded others In the past." 1 afternoon Mrs. McLean received delegations of her friends in the banquet room of the hotel. The Increasing strength of Mrs. McLean's can didacy is generally evident. Her supporters aro counting on a split which they say has developed in the last few days In the groups headed by Mrs. Sternberg and Mra Llppitt to give her additional support. Mrs. John Miller Horton. regent of the Buffalo chapter, arrived here to-nlrht. and will establish headquarters for her delegation at the New Wlllard. There have been frequent allusions to a dark horse. and some members of the society have expressed a hope that it might be Mrs. Horton. Though she has been frequently urged to allow her name to be pre sented to the congress as a candidate for president general, she has refused because of the number of organisations with which she Is connected in Buffalo and which require her presence there almost continuously. Mrs. Fairbanks, president general of th* society, returned last ni«rht from Old Point, where she w*nt to recuperate after an attack of grip. She made a visit this morrJng to Continental Hall, which Is now being decorated for the congress. A meeting of the national board will be held here to-morrow, which will be attended by all the State regents. The meeting is called to discuss plans for raising the funds and fixing The amount of the loan necessary to go on with the building of Continental Hall. Mrs. Fairbanks will preside. WOMEN TEACHERS WIN. After a struggle of many months' duration be tween the women of the public school system and th* officials of the Department of Education^ the former have succeeded tn their efforts to keep open for their advancement several prinolpalshlp* that were about to be done away with through the con solidation of the different departments tn Publlo Schools No. 2. in The Bronx, and Nos. 79 and ». In Brooklyn. These plans were believed by the women to be the beginning of a general reorganisation of the schools by the consolidation of departments and the union of schools situated near one another un der one male principal, with assistants In charge of departments and branch sohools. This would greatly reduce the number of prindpalahlps open to women. As a result of the agitation Initiated by th* women, the Board of Superintendents has with drawn Its recommendations In the case of th* thre* schools mentioned. AN EASTER SALE.
